### Formulating algebraic expressions

This lesson encompasses students’ introduction to formal algebraic concepts. Students will be introduced to the concept of variables and will explore the construction of algebraic expressions using concrete materials. Students explore a range of authentic contexts and hands-on materials in this lesson to ensure their initial ...

### Algebra: Foundation to Year 9

This comprehensive resource describes the progression of algebra-related ideas and algebraic thinking. The resource demonstrates examples of relevant teaching strategies, investigations, activity plans and connected concepts in algebra including teaching and cultural implications.

### Formulate and manipulate expressions: Year 10 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 10 is for the topic of Formulate and manipulate expressions. Students extend the distributive law to expanding the product of two binomials (ax + b)(cx + d) and the factorisation of non-monic quadratic expressions with integer coefficients. Students practise algebraic manipulation involving ...

### Formulate and manipulate expressions: Year 7 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 7 is for the topic of Formulate and manipulate expressions. Students find unknown quantities in numerical equations involving a combination of operations.

### Work sample Year 7 Mathematics: Geometric reasoning

This work sample demonstrates evidence of student learning in relation to aspects of the achievement standards for Year 7 Mathematics. The primary purpose for the work sample is to demonstrate the standard, so the focus is on what is evident in the sample not how it was created. The sample is an authentic representation ...

### 8A01A Algebra - Ochre Education

This unit of work focuses on algebra. Students simplify algebraic expressions involving adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing simple algebraic terms up to squares and cubes of algebraic factors that do not require use of exponent laws (such as multiplying and dividing coefficients or writing chains of or fractions ...

### Representing Patterns (Year 7) - Calculate

Patterns can be represented in several ways and this unit will explore five different representations.

### Linear expressions and equations: Year 10 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 10 is for the topic of Linear expressions and equations. Students have developed confidence from their prior learning to algebraically solve linear equations of the form ax + b = c and can represent the solution graphically. They extend this to solving pairs of simultaneous linear equations ...

### Linear expressions and equations: Year 8 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 8 is for the topic of Linear expressions and equations. Students build on their knowledge of the order of operations, simplifying algebraic terms and their prior knowledge of the arithmetic laws. Students will now create and rearrange linear expressions, as well as expand and factorise them.

### Algebra basics video

Use this video as a springboard to introduce algebraic thinking, and to apply that thinking to a financial context, drawing on reasoning.

### Use variables: Year 7 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 7 is for the topic of Use variables. Students students recognise pronumerals and variables in formulas they have been exposed to. They are presented real-life scenarios and explore the relationship between variables using algebraic notation as a representation.

### Expressions, formulas and substitution

In the lesson ‘Formulating algebraic expressions’, students were introduced to variables and forming algebraic expressions. In this lesson, students continue to develop these skills and will explore substituting values into familiar and unfamiliar formulas to determine an unknown. Students explore substitution in a range ...

### Formulate and manipulate expressions: Year 9 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 9 is for the topic of Formulate and manipulate expressions. Students move beyond expanding and factorising linear expressions, such as 3(2x – 1) or 4x + 6, to working with monic quadratic expressions (that is, where the coefficient of the square term is 1). This involves expanding expressions ...

### Use variables: Year 9 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 9 is for the topic of Use variables. Students apply and extend their knowledge and skills of exponent laws to simplify or expand numeric and algebraic expressions and solve equations.

### Algebra Tiles: Learning Sequence - Calculate

The following is a suggested teaching and learning sequence for using Algebra Tiles.

### Solving equations with algebra mats

In this lesson, students are introduced to solving one-variable linear expressions using a variety of concrete materials, which are related to authentic contexts to enhance their understanding.

### Using algebra tiles to solve equations

In this lesson, students use algebra tiles to solve one-variable linear equations involving multiplication and division, applying these skills in real-world contexts to enhance their understanding.

### Fractions Year 6 - Calculate

This activity challenges students to unpack a rule and see if it is being used correctly. Often students will just learn a rule and blindly use it. This task asks students to stop and think and then make corrections to ensure the rule works in all cases (generalise).

### Australia's Trade through Time

Using an interactive timeline created by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, this Teacher guide provides 12 series of learning experiences that engage students in the analysis and interpretation of data about Australian trade from 1900 to the present day. Students study videos, tables, images and texts in order ...

### reSolve: Quarter Cartons

This lesson challenges students to use algebra and proportional reasoning to investigate how changing the size of a paper square or rectangle impacts the dimensions of a box folded from that paper. Students apply knowledge about nets of 3D objects and explore algebraic relationships through a set of hands-on activities ...
